Five couples and five heritage homes come together in a massive new season that promises to see the biggest renovation in its history when The Block returns on Sunday, July 30, at 7.00pm.
The stakes have never been higher to renovate the best house. Contestants will hit the ground running, and must deliver their first room in just 48 hours. The winner of that challenge will get first choice of which house they’d like to renovate for the rest of the competition.
But as well as revitalising these charming homes, the contestants must build new features on these suburban blocks that are a massive 470 square metres. Each home will be getting a brand new extension, including an open plan living and a spacious upstairs master suite.
In the backyard there will be ample room to create a generous outdoor entertaining space, and to top it all off each property will be enhanced with a three-car garage and a self-contained studio apartment.
The five eager new couples transforming these old family homes are:
Josh (28) and Elyse (24), dating for four years, from Melbourne, VIC
Hannah (31) and Clint (33), married for five years, from Townsville, QLD
Sticks (31) and Wombat (38), best mates for fifteen years, from South Coast, NSW
Ronnie (41) and Georgia (33), married for six years, from Perth, WA
Jason (46) and Sarah (45), married for eighteen years, from Melbourne, VIC
Scott Cam will be joined by co-host Shelley Craft, along with judges Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and
Darren Palmer, “The Blockinator”, foreman Keith Schleiger, and his right-hand man, Dan Reilly.
In April 2017, The Block proved its unwavering popularity with Australian viewers by winning its fifth TV Week Logie Award for Best Reality program. The show has distributed an astronomical cash total of $17,575,501.01 to contestants since premiering on Channel Nine in 2003.
